    About me

    I have been involved in some aspect of show business for most of my life, having grown up with a musician father, attending a school for the arts-majoring in media, my ten-year tenure as an administrative assistant at the Motion Picture Association and freelancing as a stagehand for several event production companies. In my spare time I enjoy sewing my own clothing, accessories and costumes. I have always enjoyed the creative process and making/building things with my hands and working within this industry is an extension of that for me.

    I welcome the opportunity to learn new things, meet new people and to provide the best possible event production support.

    Please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience and I look forward to speaking with you further.
